OpenOffice 4.1

Send Article to a Friend

Apache has released OpenOffice 4.1, a maintenance update with a variety of tweaks to the free, open-source productivity suite. The release adds the capability to make comments and annotations on text ranges (instead of solely at text positions), improves editing of Input Fields by allowing modification of content directly within the text area, improves the interactive crop feature for use with all graphic object transformations, and improves importing of images (through both file dialogs as well as drag-and-drop). OpenOffice 4.1 now requires Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and later. (Free, 163 MB, release notes, 10.7+)

When I used the "Check for Updates. . ." feature in Open Office I got the status message "OpenOffice 4.0.1 is up to date." I'm guessing the only way to upgrade is to go to the website and download the new version.
